Andersen ultimate 5th wheel hitch

Anyone have experience or comments about the Andersen ultimate 5th wheel hitch, good or bad. Considering one, have a 2014 ram 2500 long bed. Pin box on 5th is a Reese Revolution.

Do a search for AndersEn Ultimate (also spell it incorrectly as AndersOn since some posters do). You'll find several threads discussing both the steel and the aluminum versions. I have pulled a trailer 6457 miles with one and I like it. Mine weighs 75 lbs. (aluminum is less) and sits on a B&W Turnover Ball. My pin box is MorRyde.

An alternative might be the Reese Goose Box.

The Andersen is without a doubt the best one I've ever owned, and I have had quite a few. The price is right, the weight is right, very easy to install and with the ball it makes for a solid connection with no chucking, clunking or whatever you want to call it.
